Hurricane and Voodoo triumph in Phuket Multihull Regatta

By scottm@dragonartmedia.com The Phuket Multihull championship, the 5th since its conception, sailed from the 12th -14th of July with all the prize-giving and parties taking place at the Ao Chalong Yacht Club, the organizers of the regatta. Many of Phuket’s regattas started life at or because of the Ao Chalong Yacht Club, but they all moved on to new homes. But the first time Mick Kealy was Commodore of the ACYC he decided he wanted to hold a regatta based permanently out of the ACYC. The first regatta saw only seven entries; that number tripled two years ago when a record total of boats entered the regatta. Unfortunately, tough

FCI Watermakers Series 1 Race 4

                         ACYC Series 1 Race 4 Race 4 of the ACYC series 1 was to be a difficult affair with little and shifting breeze predicted. The breeze was forecasted to move into the east and then to the south so the course was set inside Chalong Bay with the ability to shorten the course if needed. It was as usual, a competitive start with many of the 8 boats entered, gunning for the best spot on the start line. Unfortunately the breeze did not do as predicted and the fleet was soon on a soldiers course with no opportunities for upwind tactics nor spinnakers to be flown. Nearing the …

2012 Series 1, Race 7 – Commentary

A turbulent day was had by the three competitors who were brave enough to take a chance on the weather.  One way or the other they were not let down: that’s if you consider broken gear, retirements, the need to dive below to free ropes tangled in propellers, battling 30 – 40 knot winds, sizable waves and being rained on as being not let down! Race Officer Scott Duncanson set the course starting at the Chalong inner port channel marker and longtail, rounded Koh Lon and the Ao Makham safe water mark, back to the start and a around the Ban Nit safe water mark and to the finish.  From a rather easy going start controlled by starter David Rucker …

2012 Series 1, Race 5 – Commentary

With a fresh southwesterly wind, a scenic course around the islands off Chalong Bay marked the start of Race 5 of the Irish Times Race Series. Five monohulls and two catamarans participated. In the catamaran division were Niña and Sidewinder; in the cruising monohulls, Astraeus and Uravai; and in the racing division, Linda, Windstar and Moya Hin. As usual, there was plenty of action at the start line. Jack Christenson’s Linda broke the start by about three boat lengths, and by the time they realised they had to restart they were at least a mile down the course. Meanwhile, Moya Hin, owned and helmed by Peter Jones, managed to run aground on a sand bank before the start, freeing herself …

Club farewell for Adam

Over 130 locals turned out at the ACYC club last night to farewell their young club member and friend, Adam Tepper who lost his life tragically in a motorbike accident in the early hours of Thursday morning.  Although business interests saw him back in Australia in recent times, Adam has been part of the local community for many years. He has served on the sailing club committee and was a keen sailor at regattas and Sunday club racing when he was in town.  Adam’s genuine ability to bridge the age gap was evident as tributes came from the young and not so young present on the night. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Adam’s body is …
